The Colony Chamber Awards | May 2021

Student and teacher recognized by The Colony Chamber.


The Colony High School senior Franklin Corona named The Colony Chamber May 2021 Student of the Month.

The Colony High School senior Franklin Corona was recognized as The Colony Chamber/DATCU May Student of the Month. Franklin is a member of the varsity soccer team. While in soccer for his senior season, Franklin was named to the District 10-5A All-District Team, and he was also named the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Boys Player of the Week in late March. Franklin is the type of student others want to get to know and be around. He cares about everyone he meets with genuine compassion that makes a difference. Franklin is a leader among his peers and he will be successful in whatever he determines for the next step in his life.

To learn more about Franklin, we asked him the following questions: 

What are your hobbies and/or do you like to do in your free time? 
Play soccer and be with family members a lot.

What is your favorite subject in school and why? 
English as a Second Language (ESL). I arrived in America four years ago from Venezuela and did not speak any English. ESL has changed my life and I now speak English fluently and am ready for college.

What do you love most about your school and why?
I get to see my friends, do homework with them, and socialize. I love to talk to my teachers and get to know them, which is something they do not do in Venezuela, and it made a difference for me.

What are you looking forward to next year after high school?
I look forward to playing soccer in college, I received a scholarship for it, and earn my degree. I want to be an electrical engineer.

Who do you look up to and why?
I look up to my dad because he worked hard to bring my family to America, which was not easy at all. There were many struggles, and I learned a lot from that and I really look up to him.
